Have you been in a “slid into accident” caused by another vehicle on ice covered roads in the Kansas City area?
If so, then you should seek the opinion of a personal injury attorney in the Kansas City area. A local personal injury attorney will be familiar with the local laws and will likely know the area where you had your accident.
Ice on roads can be a major factor in accidents around the metro area. Drivers failing to provide adequate braking distances between cars can result in “slid into crashes.” It is the job of each driver to keep a careful lookout for possible slide situations. When a driver fails to do this, then it may be considered negligence under the law.
In some “slid into accidents”, video may be available of the accident such as from a stoplight camera. Such video could make or break the case. That is why you need legal representation to help you retain any useful videos before they are taped over or deleted.
